Thanks for the bottle Brad! CLoudy yellow liquid sits under a frothy white head. Lots os sweet spices in the nasal category. Curacao, corriander and some clove give way to flavours akin to the aroma, with extra sweetness on the finish. Decent citric acidity bite to it as well. A good wit. Thanks BeerandBLues2!

Very cloudy, copper colored, what it lacks in smell it makes up for in taste. My favorite beer yet. Oh, and a LONG lasting taste. Citrus and wheat, slightly bitter.

Fightfire4beer (132) - Virginia, USA - FEB 9, 2006
Hazy gold color with a quickly disappearing white head. Very little aroma, hard to tell but wheat with maybe just a hint of orange. Decent flavor but hey I would take a witbier over most anything else out there so I may be biased. Citrus and wheat again with an ever so slight bitter end. Really nice with a slice of orange or lemon.

Had this one on tap at a sports bar. Not much to say about this one, good or bad. I really enjoy most witbiers and I did this one too although it wasnt anything spectacular.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 5, 2006
Cloudy, orangish gold coloring with a soapy white head that diminishes very quickly to almost no head. Very gross looking clumps of yeast speckle the beer and collect on the bottom of the glass. Some mild citrusy aromas of lemon and orange, but is smells old and fermented. Texture is rather thin and watery, but the flavors are OK. Some refreshing orange notes. Thin, watery finish.

Bottle: Cloudy, initial heavy white head but fads quickly. No aroma at all. Taste is wheaty, creamy, refreshing. A good Belgium Whitbeer.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2006 its a menial beer. girly, definitely. i agree. but im giving it a high rating because a lot of times its the best beer on tap, and a lot of those times it is more that satisfactory: its good. i see we have it at below 50%. i dont really agree with that. it doesnt pour particularly well, it lacks any real aroma, its aroma is neglibile. but it does what its supposed to do, and it does it very well. im surprised, incidentally, to see it at 5.4 % abv. i would have guessed this to be in the pride and joy neighborhood (around 4.8 i think). anyways. the point is, as strange tasting a beer this is, its often a passable option at shitty bars, and i thank it for that. and, since i should put up something positive: it has reasonable flavor. neither overly complex, nor underpowered for what its meant to do. rerate: too spicy and too carbonated.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2006 My new lawnmower beer for next summer. Refreshing - carbonated -served in a pint glass from the bottle with a slice or orange. I recommend it for what it is - a pleasant brew.
